    Canon laser printer suddenly possessed.

    Have you done any simple continuity tests from end of plug to power cable exit to power supply terminals? Maybe the problem is as simple as a faulty power cord, bad power switch or contact. Use a DMM. These are super easy things to test.

    Brother DCP-7060D - "No paper" error

    I replaced the feeder cam lever and the separation pad. Nothing has changed. I still hear whirring, followed by what sounds like the roller trying to pick up paper followed by a No paper error. Can anyone help?

    Yep, it works. And off it went to a worthy charity nearby.

    Brother DCP-7060D - "No paper" error

    Hi all: I came across a Brother DCP-7060D. The page count is about 6500 pages. It has two problems. The first problem is that it prints from the manual feed tray, but not from the main cassette. When I try to print from the cassette, I hear what sounds like rollers moving and it sounds like...

    How painful/how much work to replace solenoid on HP CP2025?

    Oops! Yes, that was a typo. Indeed, it is the CP2025. I changed the thread title and content to reflect that. I did the hack of putting a piece of paper in between the solenoid pieces. Removing the parts required to be able to remove the solenoid is way too much work. I think it's working now...

    Brother FAX - damaged in transit

    Well: 1. It's relatively private. Governments and corporations are snooping on more and more of our Internet traffic. In many countries, it's now all traffic and; 2. Medical facilities with whom I need to communicate insist on it, so I don't have much choice there. But with a laser-based fax...

    How painful/how much work to replace solenoid on HP CP2025?

    Hi everyone: I have an HP CP2025 that is still not picking up paper even after replacing the pickup rollers and separation pads. Apparently, it's due to a solenoid which gets stick from the padding eventually wearing. You can just put paper in between the solenoid tab and the solenoid, but I'm...

    Brother FAX - damaged in transit

    Well, I realized that the damage was not to the printer base, but the paper drawer. I figure that this is not the worst thing that could happen, compared to the base being damaged. So I'm going to remove the other packing materials and test it today. I'll post back with my results. There's...

    Brother FAX - damaged in transit

    Hi: I just received a Brother 2840 laser fax. It was never used, but appears to have been damaged in shipping. Attached are some photos of the damage (as far as I found). From what I can tell, damage was mostly related to a part of the bottom, as it seems to have come apart/delaminated from...

    Are there common key combinations to print self-test page?

    Thanks. Unforunately, the reason I'm here asking is I've been through a decent number of service manuals and user guides and I haven't found any yet that include that info. I used Google, I called the manufacturers. "No one knows" they told me. Nonsense. This kind of info. used to be included...

    Are there common key combinations to print self-test page?

    I'll actually be testing used printers. When I help buy for family members, I compare what's new-ish with what's older, because as you know, many older models are generally built like tanks compare with today's models. Often, I"m talking to ebay sellers or sellers of used gear on other...

    Are there common key combinations to print self-test page?

    Hi everyone: I have a couple of printers I'm checking out here. I always wondered, are there common key combinations for printing self-test pages on MFCs/laser printers/laser faxes? I just contacted Brother, who by the way have discontinued all phone support. A Brother support rep on Live Chat...

    Canon (D560?) laser ADF jamming

    Well, as it turns out, the problem was just pieces of paper and masking tape stuck in the ADF rollers. After I removed those, the unit mostly feeds paper fine into the ADF. Another win for Canon reliability.

    Reccomendation for a medium-duty VERY dependable laser fax

    That's kind of what I was thinking, thanks. Looking at the reviews on Amazon.com and Newegg.com, some of the consumer-grade Brother models seem to have the same cheap gear problem that plagued many earlier Brother laser printers. I'm going to take another look at the Canon lineup. She needs...

    Reccomendation for a medium-duty VERY dependable laser fax

    Hi everyone: My cousin works in healthcare. She's not allowed to use any type of scanner that goes to her computer due to healthcare regulations. Her old film-based Sharp is dying and not worth fixing. Now, my cousin needs something laser-based that uses plain paper. She needs something really...

    Canon (D560?) laser ADF jamming

    Do you mean as a test, or as a workaround? I'm not looking for a workaround. Either I repair that ADF or I never use it. I don't want to fuss over it, just fix it, if possible. I snagged a copy of the service manual, but it's been years since I took apart printers/copiers and I'm not sure it's...

    Canon (D560?) laser ADF jamming

    Hi everyone: My elderly Mom has a Canon printer/scanner/copier. I believe it's a D560, but if could be a D530. Sorry, my photo is a bit blurry. Acc. to my sister, the ADF never worked properly on this printer from the day we got it for Mom. No one ever told me (the tech. guy in the family)...

    Possible to add LJ2200 interface board to LJ2100 series to add USB?

    Hi everyone: I'm working with a charity to whom I've offered a Laserjet 2100TN. They asked for USB, in spite of the lovely ethernet interface functionality. Since the LJ2100 series doesn't have a USB interface, I wondered if could take some interface card from a 2200 series and install it in...
